Composed in the Spring of 1824, Schubert’s Octet is one of the most iconic works of chamber music.
Writing for the unusual combination of five strings, clarinet, bassoon and horn, Schubert’s artistry reaches new heights of invention, with immaculate control of texture and expressive melodies. This is chamber music conceived at the most ambitious scale, rewarding audiences with both its awe-inspiring architecture and profound details.
Schubert’s Octet is performed alongside Melbourne composer Benjamin Martin’s new work for octet, Passepied, and Beethoven’s fiery String Quartet No.11.
